Aid for Aid: 'The Office' for NGOs

A pair of Kenyan filmmakers want to make a black comedy about an NGO that does nothing. Based on the description and the clips shown, it looks like the hit UK and US show The Office set in an NGO in Nairobi.

They are using Kickstarter to raise money for the project and look to be on track to tip the $10,000 fundraising point before time runs out on Monday. Their goal is to bring on some writers to develop the scripts and take steps to make it more professional.To get a better sense of the format, you can watch an 8 minute clip here.

I will be talking with one of the series producers tomorrow afternoon, so keep an eye out for more info on the project.
